Annie was a woman who grew up in a small farm community with a goal to marry a farmer and she did. Annie spent her lifetime learning how to be an involved business partner with her farm husband. Together they did great things, but it wasn’t easy. This is Annie’s project – to take her life’s experiences and share it with farmwomen living and working in a complex, dynamic, evolving business environment.
Annie’s project is designed to empower farmwomen to manage information systems used in critical decision making processes and to build local networks throughout the state. The target audience is farmwomen with a passion for business and involvement.
Farm women will receive training for managing information in the areas of: (1) Financial Records, (2) Production Records, (3) Marketing Plans and Risk Management, (4) Legal/Regulation Records and Documentation, and, (5) Human Resources and Time Management.
